Sacred Artists Talk

Mooney: How would you tell people to approach your art?

Emmons: The thing that keeps coming to me is to be still before it and take your time. If they give their presence to the work, hopefully they will receive a presence back. It takes time for that to happen. I did a three panel gilded piece that took me three months of hard work and someone, after looking at it for 30 seconds, said, "What are you giving me?" I simply said, "Gold!" It can't happen in 30 seconds. It's giving your attention and intention. It's very similar to prayer.

Anne can be reached at, and her artwork can be seen on her Facebook site.
